advocates are ready to fight if this race becomes too close to call. by 5 p.m., all of florida polls will be closed with its 29 electoral votes a grand prize in the electoral count. both candidates have led in the polls at some time with the latest one showing that they are only one point apart. also at 5:00er the polls shut down in pennsylvania a state that has been leaning towards reelecting the president. >> when we do see those results, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, we'll probably tell the tale of this election. if barack obama carries those three states, the election is for all intents and purposes over. mitt romney needs one or probably two of those states in order to fill in his electoral map. >> reporter: so governor romney's added stop in pennsylvania is really a signal that his camp believes he has a shot for those 20 electoral votes. he just started airing tv ads there a week ago. shows what you a big shift that is. but president obama's campaign maintains that they will win pennsylvania. we'll see tomorrow. >> thank you. >>> she had a suspicion and she didn't act on it. an

. virginia, pennsylvania, ohio, florida, iowa and nevada are all states that harbor a lot of swing voters. so folks here they want to make sure they encourage to vote democrat. >> the main thrust to all day long is to get out the vote obviously. we have been doing this for a while and today is crunch day so we want to get people ensure they are getting to the polls. >> reporter: now last night republicans were just as bessy at their headquarters in contracosta county trying to get the word out about mitt romney and they participated in phone banking and noticed a surge in republican enthusiasm. >> overnight, after that first debate, the energy level and volunteers have soared. and people have started to call and coming in and wanting to help. >> the election is very close. the polls are showing even in the race for rickey gillas within one point. >> reporter: republicans say a come from behind win is doable and they are hopeful and thefeeling among democrats that president obama needs to remain in office because they want him to finish what he started. now we are told here at the democratic h
florida, virginia, colorado, iowa, it's very close. the toughest state here to make this se ncenario work would be nevada. it's a state a that a lot of republicans and democrats slightly leans in the democratic category. but it's not an implausible scenario. if nobody got 270 then the house of representatives would decide who the president was, but the u.s. senate would vote on who the vice president was. that means the most likely outcome under this scenario is a romney/biden scenario. >> another scenario if ohio is too close to call. >> here's the problem with ohio. they have a new law that says provisional ballots, and these are ballots that are questioned there, maybe somebody didn't bring an i.d., maybe a signature is off, they will let you vote, but you get put in a separate stack. they wouldn't even start counting them until november 17th. today is still november 6th. so in 11 days, let's say the margin is less than 50,000, there's likely to be over 200,000 provisional ballots cast in ohio. they wouldn't start counting those until 11 days. . they wouldn't start counting until then.
